This will be a bit long-winded, but our recent 4 day wine tour deserves it. My wife and I recently went to Rome (3 nights) followed by 5 nights in Tuscany. We are wine fans and didn't want to drive a car. The fast train from Rome to Florence is easy (my first train trip). Once in Florence we went... More

Excellent knowledge of the wines and history. Very informative and fantastic service. I enjoyed all of the wines and the pairing with the cheese was perfect. Our sommelier knew her stuff and made the tasting interactive and informative. There wasn't a full moment! If you like wine, I would definitely recommend that you go and visit this gem of a... More

The instructor was knowledgeable, engaging and very enthusiastic about her job and wine. It was a great way to learn more about wine, wine tasting and the Tuscany area. I would encourage everyone to try the class.

This course was great fun and we learned a huge amount. Really glad we did this before exploring Tuscany as understanding the various regions and culture of Tuscan wine drinking had made a big difference! Step past the 'table wine' and understand the myriad of selections on the wine list. Very educational and entertaining. Great selection of wine as well!

Myself and my Fiance who are complete Fine Wine newbies took a 2 hour class not knowing what to expect but we were completely blown away! The teacher was fantastic - she was friendly, funny and really knowledgeable. We learnt about the history of italy & regional wine making as well as about the foundation of a good wine. It... More

We had a fantastic time on our trip. The class time was educational, the vineyard/winery tours were lighthearted and informative, and most importantly, the wine was delicious. Definitely will return.

My daughter and I joined three other couples in late July for the Chianti Classico wine time tour. We chose the 9-3 tour and truly had a great experience. I was not sure about the 45 minute "class" that started the tour but it was interesting and fun and educational all at the same time. Then we hopped into a... More

My husband, good friends, and I recently visited Siena, Italy. While there we went to The Tuscan Wine School. It was so informative as well as fun. I am certainly not a wine connoisseur, I just know what I like and don't like. One of our friends is very familiar with many wines, and he enjoyed and learned a great... More
